Sport Contact 5

Car Tyre
Tread Type:


245/45 R18 Y (100)

The Continental ContiSportContact 5 is a ultra high performance tyre developed and tested with OE car partners. The ContiSportContact 5 has been designed to deliver maximum safety mixed with driving pleasure.

Continental have constructed the ContiSportContact 5 with a supple ‘macro-block’ design - this works to increases the total contact area between the tyre and road surface for added grip when cornering. This results in superb grip and stability when cornering.


Their use of ‘Black Chilli Technology’ - which is the combination of grip enhancing resins with highly structured carbon black - also aids in delivering short braking distances.

Excellent stability throughout the life of the tyre is achieved with a 0° hybrid cap ply which also helps achieve precise steering, thanks to the tyre's circumferential stiffness and radial flexibility.


Customer Comments

  • This is the second set of Continental Sport Contact 5's I have run on my Nissan 350Z, and they are well suited to the car wet & dry. Noticeably better than the OEM fit Bridgestone Potenzas. Managed 15k miles from the last set, which included some track time, so OK for a performance orientated tyre.

  • I have noticed that in-cabin noise transfer from the tyres is much lower

  • The tyres are fine particularly when towing my caravan.

  • Very Well, will be replacing the front pair with the same type soon

  • Superb! We are extremely happy with their performance on long drives and in the wet
